Severtson Announces Giant QuickFold Cinema Projection Screens During CinemaCon 2017; Now Shipping

The QuickFold Screens Can Measure Up to 500-Inches & Are the Perfect Solution for Situations That Require Large, High Quality Commercial or Cinema-Sized Screens But Not in Permanent Static Situations 3/27/2017 10:57 PM

Mesa, Arizona, March 27, 2017 – Severtson Screens (www.severtsonscreens.com), a global leader in innovative and quality projection screens for the cinema, commercial, pro AV, and home theater markets, is proud to announce the launch of the new Giant QuickFold Screen Line during CinemaCon 2017, held in Las Vegas, Nev. from March 28-30 at Caesars Palace, booth #2516A.

“Our new QuickFold screens are easily portable that can be set up and taken down quick and easy,” explained Toby Severtson, president and CEO of Severtson Corp. “What makes them so unique and practical are the virtually limitless applications. It can be customized up to 500-inches (41.7 ft.) diagonally, making them the ideal solution for multi-purpose auditoriums, such as in commercial, university/school, house of worship, museum, and pro AV situations that require large commercial or cinema-sized screens, but not in a permanent static installation.”

Severtson’s new Giant QuickFold Screen Line includes dual frame construction for superior support and to prevent hour-glassing of the screen. Additional options include choice of multiple perforations, Silver 3D and Stellar White gains, and dress kits.

“The screens break down into a custom-built case depending on the size of the screen, thus making them incredibly portable,” added Severtson. “Our revolutionary coating allows the screens to be folded both for shipping and then for regular use. It’s the perfect answer for what was once an impossible scenario for a large format cinematic 3D screen.”

Severtson Corporation is a member of the Giant Screen Cinema Association. They have manufactured cinema screens for theaters in countries all over the world, including the United States, Mexico, Canada, Korea, Japan, Brazil, Indonesia, Singapore, Spain, Germany, France, New Zealand, Australia, Netherlands, Thailand, Scotland, China, Russia, and many more. To meet the challenge of creating extremely large screens, Severtson Corporation designed a robotic spray-arm application system to paint its high-performance optical coating in-house on screens as large as 67.75ft.x 150ft. (20.7m x 45.8m). It is currently the largest in-house cinema screen optical coating system in the world. Severtson Screens certifications and partners include Technicolor, MasterImage, Dolby, Volfoni, LightspeeD & DepthQ, and RealD (www.severtsonscreens.com/certifications).
